    I have 54 St. Paul Winter Carnival Pinback Buttons from 1947 to 2000. Only one has foxing and all are in excellent shape. 1947, 1950, 1952, 1955, 1956, 1958, 1959, 1961, 1962 (2), 1963, 1965, 1966, 1967, 1968, 1969 (2), 1970, 1972, 1975, 1976 (3), 1977, 1978, 1979, 1980, 1981, 1982, 1983, 1984, 1985, 1986, 1987, 1988, 1989, 1990, 1991, 1992, 1993, 1994, 1995, 1996, 1997, 1998, 1999 (4), 2000 (4).

    Would MNHS be intersted in thier donation?

    we also have Carnival buttons from 1937 onward – is there a collector we can get in touch with, if the Society is not interested in them? thanks
